Super Saturday at the Dallas Arboretum

 Staycation 1

This Saturday I decided to take the boys and my grandbaby out to the Dallas Arboretum. They are having $1 days everyday in August including the new Children's Garden!!

 We went right as they opened at 9 a.m. because we knew it would be stifling hot.
They allow you to bring in coolers so we packed up a small insulated tote with water bottles and a frozen pack.
We also brought along some snacks and a portable misting fan.
I tell you that was a life saver. 
Here is the gorgeous entrance and a few photos from the Children's Garden from their website:

 This is the plant lab inside the Exploration Center. We took respite from the heat in this really cool building. My sweet grandbaby loved exploring and feeling things out! 

                                     My not-so-little guy loved exploring the outdoor hydro power station. It served to cool him off some too!
And how about this gorgeous sculpture?! We were in awe with all the beautiful flowers. We will become members for sure so we can return again and again. Before we left I had my big guy take a quick pic of me and my grandbaby. 
Time goes by so fast that I want to record every moment of our lives through pictures.

What fun things have you done this summer?
